The Gen 2/Legacy Arms Henry V sword exemplifies attributes of a knightly sword of the highest quality. It has superb balance making it an exceptional fighting sword and excellent control of point for thrusting.
Original: Dates before 1422. Westminster Abbey, England. Type XVIII, Pommel-type: J.1 Cross-style: 9
This sword probably hung above the chantry of King Henry V until it either fell, or was taken down and stowed away in an old chest in a room in the S. Triforium. Henry V, British monarch of the early 15th century, was not just a ruler but an accomplished warrior who began fighting as early as age fourteen, when he fought the Welsh forces of Owain Glyndwr. Throughout his life, Henry V fought in many battles, including against the French in the 100 Years War. It is no wonder then that he would have chosen such a practical, no-nonsense weapon.
ABOUT LEGACY ARMS
Legacy Arms, formerly known as Generation 2, still leads the way in the affordable sword market creating tough, well made items for the Medieval Sword enthusiast. All blades are selectively tempered 5160 steel with a robust apple-seed edge. The tempering is designed to provide a harder edge and softer, shock resistant core so that the sword will bend or deform rather than break in the heat of combat and is faithful to many historical examples.
The hilt construction is typically in steel (passing the magnet test) unless otherwise noted and the grips are leather over wood. The tangs are peened over the pommel the traditional way for maximum overall strength. The fit and finish of these swords from Legacy Arms is quite impressive, and would be at twice the price! Made with pride in the Philippines using anvil, fire and good old muscle power.
